Question

Watching TV in another room


Hi there i'm new to this.
I am renting a flat and would like to watch TV in the bedroom. The signal is poor from the set top arial so i want to use the signal from the main one. I do not wish to drill holes and run an arial cable from the socket to the bedroom as there would be a lot of cable to reach the TV and i dont think my landlord will allow me to drill a hole through the wall. I was wondering if there are any other options or equipment avaliable so that i can use the main arial signal.
Thanks

I have seen products in the past such as "tv genie" coles thing I could find out there these days on a quick serach of the web.http://www.transavi.com/TV%20Sidekick%20MPG003.htm They allowed local broadcast of a single channel signal. They were useful but would only be limited to one channel or signal. so all tv's have the same picture. You would hook up suck a device on the output of the living room vcr and you would be able to tune whatever was playing on your other tv (beware so could other nearby tv's). It probably would be helpful for others to give answers if they knew what type of broadcast you had. Many country's have different programming formats and products and practices may not be compatible.

being from the USA many I don't believe the tv format is the "same" format. But similar type devices may be available. Here is a link to a forum area of anther site that has many high tech video guys from all over the world in it. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/forum...?s=&forumid=66 Maybe first do some searches to see if you can find a answer their if not may a new thread.

Good Luck
